Degeneres shared the video on her social media page and pledged to donate $1 million to Meals on Wheels, No Kid Hungry and America’s Food Fund.

"I usually don’t talk about my personal donations. It’s something I keep private, but I’m really hoping that this inspires anyone that’s in a position to help because there’s a lot of need out there," said the chat show host and urged fans to donate as little as $25 for the cause.
